Clinton aide says he doesn’t know what ‘wiped’ server means

 
Hillary Clinton’s press secretary says he doesn’t know what the word “wiped” means in reference to his boss’s private email server.
 
“I don’t know what ‘wiped’ means,” Brian Fallon told CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Thursday in response to whether the server Clinton handed over to the FBI was “wiped.”
 
“There’s been no — I don’t know what ‘wiped’ means, literally the emails were deleted off of the server, that’s true,” he repeated later in the interview.
 
{mosads}Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, previously joked that she also did not understand the word in that context.
 
“Like with a cloth or something?” Clinton replied at an August press conference when asked whether she “wiped her server.”
 
The Republican National Committee mocked the claim by selling server “wipes” on their website store.
 
Bryan Pagliano, an ex-Clinton staffer who managed the former secretary of State’s private email server, sent a letter to Congress on Monday saying he would plead the Fifth if forced to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
 
Pagliano is scheduled to appear before the House Benghazi Committee on Sept. 10. 
 
The FBI launched an investigation into a private email server Clinton used during her time as secretary of State, which many perceive as a threat to national security.
 
A review of thousands of pages of emails that Clinton received and wrote found several that had lines blacked out by the State Department, indicating that they contained classified material, according to a report on Wednesday.
